The Cleveland Browns suffered an incredible loss on Sunday. They led by 13 points against the New York Jets with 90 seconds left in fourth quarter and still managed to lose. This is something that is rarely seen in the NFL, especially since the onside kick rules were changed.
The Jets scored a touchdown, then correctly executed an onside kick and returned the ball, and then scored another touchdown in the final seconds for a big win. For the Browns, this must be a huge shock because they had a great chance to start new season with 2-0. Their new quarterback Deshaun Watson won’t play until mid-November due to a suspension. They hope that they will be able to keep a good record until that moment when he returns to the field and try to reach the playoffs with him as their leader.
Jacoby Brissett is definitely not a quarterback who can make big plays, but he is primarily expected not to lose many balls. The Browns have a very good offensive line that allows a lot of easy runs for Nick Chubb and that is the way they will base their game this year.
After nearly two decades, Ben Roethlisberger era with the Pittsburgh Steelers is over. He decided to retire after several weak seasons that were plagued with few injuries. Big Ben had lost its mojo and it was time to go.
He was replaced by Mitch Trubisky, who belongs to group of the weakest quarterbacks in the entire league. The Steelers failed to bring a big name to the most important position and with this concept, they can hardly hope for the playoffs. An additional problem is a very weak offensive line, so defense will be the one they will expect to make difference in their favor. That was the case in week one when they surprised the Bengals at road. Last Sunday, they weren’t able to overcome the New England Patriots in Pittsburgh.
This road trip can be tricky for the Steelers. Probably, winner will be decided on the line of scrimmage. Whoever wins that battle will have a huge advantage. The Browns defensive line is sure to overwhelm the Steelers’ offensive line, which means the Steelers defense will have to play exceptionally well.
Last season, the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cleveland Browns in both games.
Jadeveon Clowney, Chase Winovich and Jesse James are injured and won’t play for the Cleveland Browns. T.J. Watt is only unavailable player for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Prediction
Browns and Steelers are quite similar in terms of quality at this moment. Both have issues at quarterback position and rely on their run game in offense. The defenses are also very similar and we should expect a close game. In such a balance of power, we have more confidence in the team that has extra points than the one that doesn’t.
